Jimmy Butler (knee) out for Wednesday's game against Blazers

The Miami Heat have ruled forward Jimmy Butler for Wednesday night’s game against the Trail Blazers in Portland.

Butler injured his right ankle late in the third quarter of Monday’s 115-108 loss to the Golden State Warriors. The Heat provided no other updates Tuesday beyond ruling him out against the Blazers.

“He turned it around,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after Monday night’s loss. “If you talk to Jimmy right now, he tells you he’s fine.

“We will have to evaluate him and see how he feels.”

Butler suffered the injury when he went to place his right foot in a move, but he also appeared to lose his balance. He fell to the ground while holding the ball and was in pain when play stopped with 3:14 left in the quarter.

Miami took a time out and Butler had to be helped off the court by two members of the Heat, as he couldn’t put any weight on his ankle.

Butler has struggled with his right ankle this season. He missed three games in November due to a sprained right ankle. And he sprained his right ankle in a game against the Washington Wizards on Dec. 28. He was ruled against the San Antonio Spurs in a December 29 game that was ultimately postponed.

Butler had 22 points and five rebounds before his last ankle injury. The Heat star has missed 15 games this season due to injuries. He missed four games from November 29 to December 4 due to a tailbone injury. He came back for one game and then hit his tailbone again, forcing him to miss eight straight games in December.
